a little fame but awaiting fortunes…

The Whitchurch Herald this week used a staff photo of us singing at the Blackberry Fair on Saturday. From all the many different acts and displays on the day isn’t it good that we were chosen.

Philip Walker was also out and about with his camera.

Other choristers, friends and family, people in the crowd and at least one usually highly critical husband were complimentary about our performance and apparently… there was disappointment that we only did one slot. Not bad for our debut at this event.


 

During Monday’s rehearsal we gave time to learning more of the Beach Boys songs, Good Vibrations and God Only Knows, and then Donna introduced us to the very beautiful Ave verum Corpus. If you read the notes at the bottom of the score you’ll see Mozart wrote it when visiting his wife who was ‘taking the waters’ at the time in a little spa town. I wonder what he would think about our performances of it in the oldest little market town in Shropshire.


The choir has some connection to the Shropshire M. E. Group and they are holding a coffee morning on 16th October in the Civic Centre – there will be a raffle, tombola and book signing by local author Katie Flynn who is the new patron of this charity and she also has M. E. It would be lovely to see any of you there.


 

 

We have been invited to perform at the next ‘Relay for Life’ event (Cancer Research U.K.) in July next year and the committee has now confirmed the booking. We will be singing on the morning of Saturday 2nd July 2016 at the Rugby Ground.
